[quote:Hugh M Eye:MV8yMzE5MTg3XzM5NTUxODg4XzYzMjQ2NUY=] [b]Can You Hear A Meteor?-[/b] For centuries, people have reported hearing a sound made by meteors as they streaked across the skies overhead. And with the Perseids about to dazzle skywatchers with a meteor display that will earn it the title "fireball champion," some researchers are wondering if the Perseid meteor shower will be heard as well as seen. In A.D. 817, as a meteor shower passed over China, many observers reported hearing buzzing, sizzling or hissing sounds, according to a 1992 report by Colin Keay, a physicist at the University of Newcastle in Australia. (snip) [b]Skywatchers hearing things[/b] As recently as the 1970s, people who reported hearing a sound as a meteor passed were routinely dismissed as crackpots, according to the report by Keay, published in the journal Asteroids, Comets, Meteors. But after a large meteor passed over New South Wales in 1978, hundreds of anecdotal reports from people who claim they heard the meteor flooded the news media. Keay analyzed 36 of these reports and drew some important conclusions. [b]Meteors obviously release electromagnetic radiation in the visible portion of the spectrum, but the fact that they also release very low frequency (VLF) radio waves, below 30 kilohertz, is less known and less studied. Because these VLF radio waves travel at the speed of light (not at the speed of sound), they arrive at the same time observers see a meteor passing overhead.[/b] more here: http://www.accuweather.com/en/outdoor-articles/astronomy/can-you-hear-a-meteor/16495668 [/quote]
Perseid Meteor showers peaking now through tomorrow night. Thanks to our beloved internet we can observe them from our computers even if it's raining outside. Of course if you're blessed with clear, dark skies all you need is a lounge chair or blanket, some bug repellent and a pair of eyeballs. That's right, NO FANCY OPTICS REQUIRED.
